How to set the time on your Samsung TV
Samsung TV Upgrade
Samsung B-Series LED TVs do not have time zone adjustment to display the time correctly. Therefore, if you live, say, in Ukraine and use the services of a local cable TV operator, in the mode of time display “Auto” your TV will show the time that comes from your cable operator, which is usually set to display the Greenwich Mean Time Zone (GMT), the difference with Ukraine, which is 2 hours. As a result every time you flip through the TV Guide with the program schedule you have to perform in your head arithmetic operations, though not complicated, but sometimes confusing to calculate the correct time in the program. The position of Samsung TV manufacturers refusing to add another menu item for time zone adjustment (as it is done in many TV tuners) is not quite clear.
Fortunately, there is a solution for this bug, too. Once again we have to thank enthusiastic programmers who are developing SamyGO project, which has already become international.
- Samsung B-Series TV with “pre-February” (or already patched) firmware;
- an empty USB-flash drive in FAT32 format;
- From the link below you can download the new patched GMT firmware;
- in normal mode using a USB-flash drive fill this firmware into the TV;
- In the service menu of TV set the PANEURO region;
- Saving your current TV channel list to a flash drive beforehand;
- Then in the country settings you need to choose the required time zone (GMT2 or another, depending on how many hours the time in your TV differs from the real one);
- Restore previously saved TV channel list from a flash drive;
Note: after reflashing the GMT firmware and adjusting time zone all previously installed games, applications and modules (SamyGO Auto, PVR, ArFix2 etc.) will remain untouched.) will remain untouched. There is no need to reinstall anything.
The procedure is not complicated and does not take much time. There is no sense to repeat here because there is a detailed instruction which is easy to understand even for beginners (GMT firmware for your TV model is also available for download):
see. Instructions to set up the time zone in TV of Samsung B-series (to get access to the forum section you have to register there first).
For all other users whose Samsung TV models and firmware versions differ from those listed in the manual, welcome to the Russian-language forum on upgrading Samsung TV software and firmware, or for those who are good with English. then to the English forum dedicated to the project SamyGO.
P.S. Nowadays there are already new versions of patch firmware GMT2 with built-in function of quicker and easier changing of time zones. Some of them have additional functions of switching audio tracks for digital channels with one button on the remote control and changing the picture size modes during watching movies or TV shows (ArFix2). Instructions and the firmware you need can be found on the tracker (registration is required to access the tracker).

You don’t need to look for your smartphone if you don’t have it handy to find out what time it is. Always in control so you don’t stay up late watching your favorite show.
If you’re receiving a signal through the antenna, all you have to do is set the date and time to Auto, and then they’ll be set automatically, depending on the transmitting station.
Check whether the time is set correctly on the LG TV in this case, you can do as follows:
- Turn on the TV and select the “Settings” option.
- In this menu, find the “Time” item.
- Select the “Check the current time” option.
- Select “Clock” and activate the “Auto” function.
If you receive the signal through a set-top box or other external devices, you can set the date and time manually in just a few minutes.
Setting the Clock on LG TV: Instruction
- Turn on the TV and press the “Menu” button on the remote control. You will see a panel of different settings on the TV screen.
- Select “Time and date” (Clock icon). You can navigate the menu with the joystick on the remote control (Up, Down, Left, Right buttons). Confirm the action by pressing the OK button.
- Select “Clock” item in “Time & date” section. There you can set the time and the time zone.
Also pay attention to the sections “Sleep timer”, “Off time” and “Time”.”, “Time on.”. These can be used to program the TV to switch itself off after a specified period of time, or you can set the TV to switch on and off time.
It is important because on LG TV sets the time is not constantly displayed, but is shown on the screen only when you turn on or change channels. This is to avoid distracting viewers from the TV content, and to keep the TV screen from fading.
Unfortunately, date and time settings can get thrown off by external causes, such as lights out.
